I wanted to make a beautiful pedestal stand to display one on my favorite paper Angeles!
I chose a Walnut Hollow round Basswood Plank for the top and a  glass candle stick holder for the pedestal.






I wanted to add Sparkle to the stand. Using E600 glue I started by making sure the glass was clean and dry. I then spread the glue evenly over the sides and very quickly applied the crystals, using Crystyler in size 20.

I love these Graphic 45 Metal Flowers and wanted to add them to my project.

I stacked the two different size flowers and bent them for  three diminutional look.

Then using a hot glue gun I hot glued them to the side of my stand. For added Sparkle I added crystals to the center of the flowers.




Now I was ready to glue the candle stick to the center of the  wood with generous
amount of e6000.




I loved how this stand turned out! Get Creative you can use it to display your holiday desserts of Christmas decorations.
